About the Technique
The JJ Dancer Technique is an energetic, high-intensity workout that focuses on building long, lean muscles and torching away the fat. This powerhouse workout is the next level of fitness training. It brings intense body conditioning, calisthenics, and kickboxing together with a fun, hot and sweaty dance party, and the result is a recognizable “dancer’s body” – lean frame, sculpted arms, flat abs, elongated thighs, and a lifted booty. The workout is designed with innovative full body movements that strengthen smaller, supportive muscles and lengthen primary muscles, improving form, function and overall quality of movement.
JJ’s electrifying dance cardio consists of easy to follow, high-energy dance routines derived from styles like Hip-Hop, Jazz-Funk, Salsa, Ballet, Belly Dance and booty shaking – JJ’s personal fave – with the incorporation of resistance bands, light weights, core and barre work, mat work, calisthenics, kick boxing, step aerobics, and circuit training. It’s hard work, sweat, fun, great music, and all you’ve got to give! The JJ Dancer Technique is designed to constantly challenge your body and mind, and will leave you feeling empowered and motivated!
